Mares Puck Pro Review

The Puck Pro from Mares is the successor of the very widely used Puck. It builds on the simplicity and ease of use of the original device yet improves where things could be improved. The simplicity is the outstanding feature of this entry-level dive computer. That, and the great price you can get it for. It doesn’t have any advanced functionalities but none of those should be expected at this price point! Overall it’s a great device for the beginner diver or if you’re looking for a backup.

This is a quite large scuba computer. Some compare it to the size of a hockey puck. This does have advantages under water as it’s easy to read the information on the display. It does mean though that you can’t use it as an everyday watch.

When Mares introduced the Puck dive computer on the market in 2008, it sent a shockwave rippling through the industry: a super intuitive, easy to use, full-featured RGBM nitrox computer at an extremely competitive price. Now we are doing it again. Though improving on the original concept was not easy, we did so by implementing a larger display in a slimmer design, then added upgradeable firmware and multigas capability. All the bells and whistles, no unnecessary frills. Puck Pro is the computer that can accompany you through years and years of diving adventures.
